open quote War Crimes Act Changes Would Reduce Threat Of Prosecution

By R. Jeffrey Smith
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 9, 2006

The Bush administration has drafted amendments to a war crimes law that would eliminate the risk of prosecution for political appointees, CIA officers and former military personnel for humiliating or degrading war prisoners, according to U.S. officials and a copy of the amendments.

Officials say the amendments would alter a U.S. law passed in the mid-1990s that criminalized violations of the Geneva Conventions, a set of international treaties governing military conduct in wartime. The conventions generally bar the cruel, humiliating and degrading treatment of wartime prisoners without spelling out what all those terms mean.

The draft U.S. amendments to the War Crimes Act would narrow the scope of potential criminal prosecutions to 10 specific categories of illegal acts against detainees during a war, including torture, murder, rape and hostage-taking.

Left off the list would be what the Geneva Conventions refer to as "outrages upon [the] personal dignity" of a prisoner and deliberately humiliating acts -- such as the forced nakedness, use of dog leashes and wearing of women's underwear seen at the U.S.-run Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq -- that fall short of torture. more  close quote

Even if this doesn't pass...

sounds control panelXP Startup: It's Alive; Shutdown: That's All Folks! Custom Windows Sound Effects

Recently I had reason to create another Account to boot into in Windows XP. This booting and then rebooting was making me listen to the same old boring XP startup and shutdown/logout sounds. Oh well. Then, for some reason, I lost my speaker volume, just silence. So, into Start/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices. Fixed.

But while I was there I noticed in the Sounds tab, Program Events and Sounds/Browse. I didn't even know Windows could do that. So, I browsed for wav files I'd got saved, and came up with a couple for Startup... It's Alive, from the original Frankenstein I think, and Shutdown/Logoff... Porky Pig's That's All Folks! Have fun! Google for wavs.

conyersConyers: The Constitution in Crisis [HuffPo]

open quote Rep. John Conyers: The Constitution in Crisis

Six Years of Unchecked Abuses -- Had Enough?

Today, I am releasing the final version of my report, the "Constitution in Crisis." The report, which is some 350 pages in length and is supported by more than 1,400 footnotes, compiles the accumulated evidence that the Bush Administration has thumbed its nose at our nation's laws, and the Constitution itself.

Approximately 26 laws and regulations may have been violated by this Administration's misconduct. more  close quote

Meanwhile, Crooks and Liars pointed out "It's been about 48 hours... it appears that the only mainstream media outlet - literally, the only one - to even mention the release of the report was CNN, when Jack Cafferty devoted 200 words to the subject late last week." And Buzzflash points to a National Review piece saying it's really The Democrats' Impeachment Road Map.
